Antique Garden Design Bakshaish Carpet, Origin: Persia, Circa: Late 19th Century (around – 1880) – Truly a remarkable sight to behold, this majestic antique Persian garden carpet of Bakshaish design is a fantastic example of this prized and renowned style. This stupendous rug features an incredibly richly detailed, complex garden, separated by a series of effortlessly beautiful streams of running water. Each individual garden is richly decorated with countless small flowers of various colors, all set against a backdrop of deep and rich red. The startling blues of the running waters that bifurcate each of the gardens serves as an impressive contrast on this Persian rug, while also speaking to the overall strength of the composition. A similarly intricately wrought border of palmettes of alternating hues frames the entire composition in a bold manner, underscoring the complexity of the piece. From the spectacular composition to the overall quality of the rug itself, this majestic Bakshaish is a master work.
